Description syntern 2009-01-09 09:56:09 UTC
In the JSF Visual Editor, one should try the following:
- Create a Group Panel
- Create a few items (e.g. button, textbox) on it. As you drag the item, you are able to select the relative position of
the item (e.g. before or after the already placed button) on the group panel
- Once the item is placed, you are not able to drag it, once dragged, the whole group panel will move

Required behaviour: one should be able to drag the items inside the group panel, e.g. to reorder them

Only workaround: source code editor, which is not really good, because the major benefit of Netbeans is the visual editor.

There is no need to go into the source. You can change the order via Navigator panel by dragging the items inside the
group panel.

The visual editor doesn't support it because it is not supported by the component itself. Also I think there is missing
an appropriate designtime API (needed some enhancement) for that. I.e. this should be more as an enhancement.

In any case, I decrease to P3, because there is a visual way to do it (see above).
